Easter egg hunt at Narooma Public School | Photos

Students at Narooma Public School on Friday ended Term 1 with a mufti day and fun Easter egg hunt, organised by the school’s P&C Association.

The children headed out onto the school grounds, class by class, looking for hidden corks, which they handed in to receive chocolate eggs.

P&C president Jenny Owens-Roberts explained she came up with the concept for the easter egg hunt using corks after seeing the technique used in the United Kingdom.

“We used to do it in the UK where you pay an entrance fee, looks for corks and then get an Easter treat as a reward,” she said.

The corks used in the hunt were donated by community members, while the Easter eggs were donated by Narooma Woolworths, she said.

Principal Paul Sweeney said the whole school, students and teachers, were looking forward to the Easter holidays with today being the last day of school, before the two-and-a-half week break.

“100 per cent, we all look forward to a break,” Mr Sweeney said. “It’s been a busy term and a productive term. It’s great to have a fun event like this to end the term and it's great to have such a supportive P&C that can organise events like this.”
